My Locale Sunshine State
About Me Began hiking in the Carolinas, some in Virginia and now in Florida - much less variation in terrain, I'm sad to say, but beautiful in its own right. A Gatewood Cape w/Serenity is my primary solo shelter nowadays.

I'm also into kayaking & fishing.

Re: Layering with a Windshirt

Re: basic raingear question...
In short, I don't think you do! Gaiters are your only hope. Poncho should HELP.

Jack, Sorry to hear about your injury. Crazy Pete posted a trip report about this very thing. Worked out well for him, as well as I remember. Heal quickly..... Todd
